Pets are members of the family. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to bring your pets with you on vacation. For those times when you need to board your pet while you are away, you need to consider carefully where you are leaving your four-legged friend. Cats & Dogs Animal Hospital is a full-service animal hospital that provides quality veterinary care for pets in and around Long Beach, CA.

Choosing Where to Board Your Pet

The first thing you want to ask is if can you have a tour of the facility. If the answer is no, walk away. It is very important to see the accommodations your pet will be in to be confident it is safe.

How much playtime will your pet have? No one wants to think of their pet in a crate for days on end. No matter what they call it, it is limited space that your pet will be confided in. Your pet needs time to go outside or into a playroom.

Are cats and dogs kept separated? This is important, especially if your pet gets anxious when confronted or hearing pets of a different species.

Getting Over Your Anxiety

Boarding your pets can be more traumatic for you than it is for them. Taking a tour, talking to the staff, and asking a few questions is the best way to put your mind at ease. Get a recommendation from friends or your veterinarian. Having someone you know that has used this particular boarding kennel can put your mind at ease. You want a clean, safe place where your pets will get the attention they deserve. Spending your vacation worrying about your pets is no fun.
